Some of the most glorious music ever written; plus a mystery full of passion, jealousy, and (possibly) murder; plus a live soundtrack performed by the incomparable Philadelphia Orchestra: it just doesn’t get any better than Amadeus, the enthralling story of composer Antonio Salieri’s crippling envy of the vastly more talented Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. As the (fictionalized but immensely entertaining) plot plays out onscreen, you’ll hear excerpts from Mozart’s dazzling symphonies, serenades, and piano concertos, as well as The Marriage of Figaro, Don Giovanni, and the Requiem that he tried desperately to finish as he lay dying.
This 1984 film directed by Miloš Forman was a smash hit, winning eight Academy Awards. The original soundtrack album is one of the most popular classical music records ever. Veteran film conductor Richard Kaufman is on the podium for these unforgettable nights at the movies.
Amadeus Live is a production of Avex Classics International
